know politics. i don't know this politics. obama's the president. he will be for four years. he's the guy who will make the calls politically until 2016. is this about just attacking democrats? is this about trying to convince her, mrs. clinton, not to run? if so, it might just be the easiest way to guarantee she runs. don't you think? neera tanden is a former policy director to hillary clinton, and ron reagan is an msnbc political analyst. both of you are good people to have on right now. i want to get a comment from neera, and i want a gut reaction. this disgusting attack, the back benchers, each one of these nuts, they are nutty in their behavior, hannity, "the new york post" with the disgusting front page today, rush limbaugh with his usual feminine nazi nonsense coming out. do you think this will make secretary clinton more likely to run for president or less likely that all the jackals are attacking her. >> i don't think rush limbaugh or any of these people will have a dime's bit of difference on hillary clinton. she has been dealing with their ilk for 20 years. she's goin
the region will be a political and economic and military chaos. lou: president obama has said that a decade of war is near its end. peace is at hand, i guess. is that a prospective you share? >> no, that was never true. it was not true when he said it last year, and it's not true today. these wars are continuing. it simply means that we are not in the fight or not helping shape the outcome. the outcomes matter, whether in afghanistan, syria today than. our interests are at stake. there are ways in which we can help shape these outcomes favorably tell us into our friends and allies in the region without committing tens of thousands of ground troops. that is a strong man. he has assembled. so, again, it has to do with the strategy of foreign-policy. instead of seeing every issue as a transaction to move from your in box tiara box, this administration has a hard time understanding this week that is taking place across the arab world in developing a comprehensive response to it. lou: thank you for being with us. we appreciated. thank you. thank you both. up next, it turns out that president bus
's an amazing political pick in that the obama administration is banking on the idea that the elite media and politicians will see the word prosecutor in mary jo white's resume and say that means she must be tough on crime forget that she hasn't been a prosecutor for a decade and has been defending the biggest most powerful wall street c.e.o.'s in the country. politically, it's banking on voters, on the elite media simply not knowing who she really is. i think as a citizen as somebody concerned with the fact that the administration hasn't prosecuted a single wall street banker connected to the financial crisis, i think this is a terrible pick. i think wall street is celebrating right now saying the person who's in in the s.c.c. looks like she's going to get tough on us, but we know she has a record of defending our interest. >> >> cenk: the new york times explains she's not going to face much opposition from the republicans. >> shocking. >> cenk: michael david and i are clear on this. what's your take? >> i agree with you which is not something we always do. i think that it's actually pre
right now, the work that is being done in democratic politics right now, led by president obama at the start of his second term is this effort to turn what has been long-standing majority support for liberal policies into appreciation that those policies aren't just individual free-floating tech no ratically good ideas that we agree on, those policies come from a worldview and a problem-solving approach that is in fact the governing philosophy of this country. we're a liberal country. we are not a center-right country the way the right always wants to tell us. we are a country where liberal policies are widely popular and, frankly, at the national level we express that right now by mostly voting for democrats. by a lot. that's the portrait of the country that the president was painting this week in his second inaugural, in tying this list of what get described as liberal policies to fundamental centrist, widely acknowledged, basically universal american values. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with
of politics involved in all this as well, right? >> there is tons of politics. the obama administration has been saying that we really need this power of recess appointments because over the past 2, 3, 4, 5, years, congress has gotten, the republicans in congress have gotten far more partisan. they've gotten much, much more aggressive about preventing confirmation of nlrb appointees and of judicial appointees. and i'm sure that many in the obama administration are really tremendously up set by this decision because it really might seriously block their ability to name the people that they feel under the constitution they have the right to nominate. >> all right, steven greenhouse of the "new york times," thanks so much for joining us. >> nice to be here. >> brown: coming up-- location reports from two newshour correspondents: margaret warner in jerusalem, and ray suarez in davos, switzerland. plus, the advances against islamist rebels in mali; zero waste in san francisco; and shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: president obama chose his

. [applause] [applause] california was the first in the nation to pass laws to implement president obama's historic political career at. health benefit exchange called cover california will begin next year perverting assurance to nearly 1 million californians. with the rest this decade, california will steadily reduce the number of uninsured. today a call for a special session to do with those issues that must be decided quickly if california is to get the affordable care act started by next january. broader expansion of medi-cal is incredibly complex that will take more time. working out the right relationship of counties will test our ingenuity and not be achieved overnight. given the cost involved, great prudence should guide every step of the way. california lost 1.3 million jobs in the great recession, overcoming back at a faster pace than the national average. the nuance of business and economic development, gove is, one of the good bills -- [laughter] directly assisting more than 5000 companies this past year. one of those who stand some connectors headquartered in korea were tuba
and politically. it's the first setback obama has had. he has been riding high on everything. victory after victory. this is an important setback. it's likely to temper their pension for ruling through executive orders. and by administrative actions. to go around congress. this is a rebuke. saying that we were saying at the time. these are lawless appointments. the senate was not in recess. >> bret: explain this. thenate was in a pro forma session. the republicans kept it in pro forma session. they were doing some things. they were moving some things along. some things were moving through. it wasn't a full session. democrats were refuting that. the president said they were re -- the president said they were recess appointments and the republicans said we weren't in recess. >> recess appointments look like a power grab and they are. they use them to slip through controversial nominee the other party opposes. george w. bush did it 171 times. clinton, 139. reagan 243 times. this a practice that they use. they figured out how to make fake sessions to seem like the chamber is not in recession. t
and may have been reacting to cbs news political director john dickerson, who said president obama should "go for the throat." republicans are now more paranoid than ever. speaker boehner is basically whining like a coach who's had the score run up on him. i mean, boehner has a little less swagger than he did two years ago when he took over the house with this wave of tea party republicans, but what a difference a couple of years makes. president obama is not the only one who benefits from contrasting himself with the republican party. governors like chris christie and bobby jindal take occasional shots at their own party and look almost mainstream by comparison. for the record, white house press secretary jay carney said today that the president believes a strong two-party system is the foundation of our democracy. let's bring in msnbc political analyst richard wolffe and vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. richard, great to have you on always. >> thanks, ed. >> no one, including president obama, has the power to shove the gop into the dustbin of history unless they of cour
it on the people who best can afford it. it worked for president obama, the democrats, like the cbs news political director said is to go for the jugular, to cut the throat to destroy republicans. this is not about achieving a budget or growing jobs. it's about destroying the opposition so they can continue grow the size of the federal government, continue to increase deficits and debt so there's at some point no choice except to continue to raise taxes. >> senator, i'm less interested in this democratic tax budget. i want to ask you a question direct. will the spending sequester the automatic across the board spending cuts sequester go in. if you don't do anything on march 1st as you well know, it goes into place. 1.2 trillion roughly often years, hundred billion this year, to me the public wants lower spending. senator, will they get it? will the gop just say go on ahead dean it? -- ahead and dope it? -- ahead and do it? >> they are hemmed in by the recognize of the democrats again and again. the republicans do not want to cut defense spending. very concerned about what that's going to do. we go
take on denis mcdonough as a figure in national politics? >> he is a real loyalist. very intensely loyal to obama to the point where when he was dealing with the president in the first term, there was a lot of conflict because he was a very fiercely loyal, and, you know, as obviously he has done a good job. obama really obviously loves him, which is different. he is a real loyalist. he has a long, interesting ark in american politics. he was the guy. he was senator tom daschle's chief foreign policy staffer when they were rounding up democrats to vote in favor of the iraq war. something all those guys regret. i think mcdonough spent a lot of his career making up for it. >> certainly the president has embraced him regardless of that. let's talk about that embrace because during that we both noted there is a certain levity and joy and feeling that the president is in the game and relishing it in a way that we did not see a lot m first term. >> he could take over the world with the liberal heart. >> he can be president. >> standing astride the kwvrn movement and crush it under his boo
to annihilate the party, that takes it to the future not the past. >> well look this is the most political presidency we've ever had, it's the perpetual campaign, as soon as the campaign was over and we started talking about the first serious piece of business the fiscal cliff, the obama administration ran it purely like a political campaign. if you heard the president's state of the union address where the vast majority of americans are worried about economic growth about job creation about these gigantic unprecedented deficits and the debt that our country has, he hardly mentioned that. >> all right, governor. >> in his inaugural dress. >> governor barbour, good to see you. >> thank you norah and charlie. >>> the nation's deep freeze is creating problems. firemen in lawrence massachusetts, had to fight two fires in the subfreezing weather, dealing with frozen hydrants and hose lines and in chicago these are new pictures of the snow as it falls on the windy city this morning. chicago is one of many places expecting a wintry mix today says meteorologist augustyniak
the first serious piece of business, the fiscal cliff, the obama campaign ran it purely like a political campaign. if your heard the president's state of the union address where the vast majority of americans are worried about economic growth, job creation, the gigantic debt crisis that the government has, he hardly mentioned that in his address. >> governor barbour, thank you so much. >> thank you, norah and charlie. >>> fire crews in northern massachusetts north of boston had to fight two fires yesterday in sub-freezing weather. they're dealing with frozen hydrants and hose lines. chicago adjustment one of many places expecting a wintry mix today says minneapolis mike agustugustyniak of our affiliat wcco. >> chicago is getting snow and detroit is getting snow and it's all in response to the warmer air that's going to be responding in the next couple of days. the ice is going to be program especially through i-40 and north tennessee through kentucky and later today working through western north carolina, western south carolina. a quarter of an inch of icing at most, enough to slick up t
with the political postscript and it started with president obama's second inauguration and was also highlighted by secretary of hillary clinton's testimony on benghazi and senator john kerry's confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state. >> progress does not compel us to settle centuries long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk and decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i would take office as secretary proud that the senate is in my blood. but equally proud that so, too, is the foreign service. >> senator kerry referring there to his father serving as a diplomat. so he grew up as a child of a diplomat. as for president obama's remark there aiming to get congress to find some common ground, the senate last night approved changes to the filibu
some political support from an unlikely source. he's facebook's founder, mark zuckerberg, who headlined events for president obama's re-election campaign. he will host an event for christie next month at his home in california. >>> the unbearable deep freeze menacing millions of americans is delivering yet another day of biting cold temperatures, as the dangerous winter weather blows into the east and south. you can now add more snow and ice into the frigid mix. abc's tahman bradley has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, the arctic air that's making life miserable for millions is marching south. in huntsville, alabama, salt trucks are standing by. they're prepping around knoxville, tennessee. >> we're expecting the worst. you always expect the worst. >> reporter: while the midwest and northeast remain frozen -- >> got 20 layers on. body warmers, hand warmers, foot warmers. >> reporter: a new round of ice and snow is bearing down on 15 states from ohio to alabama. this cold blast, which has taken over one-third of the country, is dangerous. look at what firefighters in chicago had to
for the man that president obama nominated to take his place? outgoing chief of staff, jack lew? the guy is a political operative. how will he be his treasury secretary? steve forbes is here to weigh in on that. sandra: find out why the money market fund industry is trying to keep you from your own money in times of crisis. ♪ sandra: s&p 500 futures closing right now ahead of the weekend. let's head back to mark ses -- sebastion in the pits of the cme. how are things looking?. >> looks like we gave away couple points after the bell. cash is 1500 right now in the s&p. watch those s&p levels. the s&ps need to break the 1500 level. that is the tradable asset. if that breaks 1500 that could lead into breakout next week and lead to some momentum that is something i will watch mopped and tuesday. sandra: thanks so much, mark. david: thanks, mark. shares of radioshack, haven't heard much about that. they are soaring today. nicole is on the floor of nyse to tell us why. >> very interesting. radioshack is a stock beaten down, out of favor, certainly not the hot stock of wall street. what is int
school shooting. president obama supports a assault weapons ban. including mothers. >> when kids can't feel safe at school, it is time to put their safety above politics, above profits and enact legislation. >> reporter: dianne feinstein says passing the bills will be challenging. >> reporter: what will you do to get them on your side? >> well, it has to be the people of america. red state or a blue state. somebody picks up the phone and calls their representatives. >> reporter: supporters say the bills would protect gun owners by excluding rifles. the national rifle association says the bill is disappointing but not surprising and americans know bans does not work. the nra is confidence washington will reject the bill. >>> vice president joe biden used a chat on google to throw his support behind the assault weapons ban. >> police organizations support it because they get out gunned. they are out gunned on the street. >> joe biden said the violence in america is from gang bangers, the drug trade and stolen weapons and says the nation needs to put more officers on the streets to make
say, look, in politics and in democracy sometimes you win elections; sometimes you lose elections. and i worked very hard but i lost and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> pelley: steve also asked whether this joint interview was an endorsement. you'll hear that and the rest of the president and the secretary this sunday on "60 minutes". the dual interview was so unusual we just had to bring in bob schieffer, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation." bob, what do you think? >> schieffer: well (laughs) other than to take the president at his word, anything i would offer as to why they decided to do this would be just pure speculation. but it's very unusual for the president, any president, to say i want to do an interview but i want to bring a friend. i'm sure steve must have been surprised. presidents generally don't want to share the spotlight with anybody. but the president, you heard him, said he wanted to say thanks, that's sort of swee
in politics who give the voice. don't show any contrast. so by the third debate, i'm pretty certain mitt romney actually french kissed baraco obama. >> wow, with friends like those, maria. >> it was interesting what paul ryder started doing. >> i won't be surprised if they start taking on policy. i don't know if they want mitt romney out in front of him. what they do want is his access to the war chest. while they may not be courting him in public and basically touting him as the idea of brilliant ideas, they will be calling on him to make sure that he's calling those billionaires that basically did the citizens united so effectively that tarnished the name of the president. it's behind closed doors and the american people can't see what he may be up to. >> you know, bash, you've been in politics for a while and you've led some of the campaigns in our time. i think you need big people to big things. it was reported that not only was he going to skip the inauguration -- and he was the first losing candidate to do that since '89. that's one thing. but an aide went onto say and he had no pl
dislikes washington and disdains office politics and bureaucracy. they say her dream job would be commissioner of major league baseball or fbi director. she was considered for that latter post before president obama picked white, one of this generation's best prosecutors, to police wall street. the first woman u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york, white led prosecution teams that convicted mob boss john gotti, a vicious mob killer who had escaped prosecution by tampering with juries. white kept her jury anonymous and sequestered. she built the best set of terrorism prosecutors in america, convicting the blind sheik for conspiracy to bomb the united nations and other new york landmarks. she also convicted ramsey youseff for the 1993 world trade center bombing. and she was on osama bin laden's trail before anyone, indicting the al qaeda leader for the deaths of 18 u.s. soldiers in somalia in 1993, charges that later included the 1998 bombings embassies in kenya and tanzania. >> so i'd say that's a pretty good run. you don't want to mess with mary jo. mary jo does n
immigration negative year. obama issued the executive order to allow children whose parents brought them here illegally to work for two years without deportation. but daniel who leads the of the british and assess it was done to score political points. >> it is not helpful. john: why? he guilt -- legalese is -- legalizes some workers. >> it is a temporary solution people on the hill were working to make it permanent it was derailed. john: there is a better plan? >> on one side president obama once a big massive spill that is the unpalatable to the republicans who once it to the bite size chunks huckabee address those who are unauthorized? and those who want to come into the country. john: but those who come forward to have fingerprinted calmat pay back taxes, fines, then can apply. >> cattle dinky says that. so what we do is decriminalized the activity where business forces higher they need to but unfortunately we have a criminal culture that needs to be addressed. john: like your father? >> he was on the shoulders of his uncle illegally. he made the decision to work john: i will push back. i
. this decision said the recess appointments as they have been done not just by president obama, but all presidents in recent decades. they are all unconstitutional. >> sorry this a political decision? >> this is the question that is hard to answer. these are three very conservative republican judges. the political implications of the decision are clear. for a republican anti-democrat and can i say that that was the motivation of the judges? i can't. >> can we assume it's the u.s. supreme court that will consider this or leave it hanging? >> they have to. it's too important of a decision and think the supreme court will take it. >> this is an automatic. >> almost automatic. very difficult to predict because this is an aggressive conservative majority on the supreme court. citizens united and campaign finance. the second amendment and gun control. this court has been aggressively conservative and it could be affirmed by the supreme court. >> what are does it say about president obama? >> the d.c. circuit court of appeals that decided this case often called the second most important court

and not top down politically and t artificially from washington. if what obama was proposing was a great idea, this should be the most prosperous economy in the world. republicans heard jindal say we're going to do something new and turn that model on its head and grow the economy bottom up. that's how republicans get young people, women, immigrants, everybody. >> one of the things that mitt romney got into trouble with is that it really did sound like he was being degrading to african-americans, latinos and people who supported the president by saying the kinds of things that you just said in terms of being a victim and being taken care of. how does the republican party -- what is the message here in terms of we are inclusive and we will provide for your life so that it is a better life without sounding so condescending? >> i'll disagree. i don't think that's what i just said. i think that is in fact the president's approach to government that in a complex world, you know, he targets these folks. this is the story of julia cradle to crave, government is here to give you stuff and help y
to assault weapons. i think at the end of the day it will be the big test of the new obama paradigm, which is to go outside the beltway, build pressure out the beltway, and make the republican obstructionists pay a severe political price for obstructing what is a strong american voter public sentiment in favor of doing these common sense gun rules. >> toure, to julian's point, dianne feinstein introduced her bill, which is an assault weapons ban bill. as we saw in the latest polls, there's broad support, 58% for this. support among gun owning households is 45%. let's hear jay carney on the bill itself. take a listen to jay. >> the president supports renewal of the assault weapons ban. he supports addressing or limiting the magazine capacity of ammunition -- the capacity of ammunition clips. the fact that they're hard, some harder than others, doesn't mean we shouldn't move forward on them. >> is that the acknowledgment of what julian was just saying, that in a sense they're going for everything, but if they've got to get it through the house, they're more likely to get some kind of rul on
. this is personal. it stood next to president obama as the marines carried the flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. >> andrea: it sounds familiar, doesn't it? 2008 maybe? >> this is very personal for me. it's not just political. it's not just public. i see what is happening. we have to reverse it. >> bob: what is wrong with that? she next to caskets getting off an airplane and getting choked up. >> andrea: that is not the point. the point i'm making is this. she cried a couple hours later, she won that new hampshire primary. she has been painted as a victim. it works. if she does run, if she wants to, i don't think we are done with hillary clinton. >> bob: the inference is she has done it for political reasons. i don't believe that for a second. >> greg: if she wins the white house bill is back in the white house so break out the plastic covering for furniture. >> andrea: you're right, politicians don't do things for political reasons. whatever. coming up, romance is brewing between mark zuckerberg and new jersey mayor chris chris christie. some democrats aren't happy about it and tryin
